#dailygratitude - just dance


Just do the dance.

Just do it now.

Don’t wait for tomorrow.

Just take the time

To take the step.

Perfection’s not the goal.

Just take one step.

That’s all it takes.

To get yourself going.

With each step

We move along.

We finally sing the song.

Title : “Gesture Drawings”

Charcoal on paper



The backstory:

A morning in the ballet studio produced a few quick sketches of dancers working diligently to perfect their Art. My hand moving swiftly, I still struggled to catch up with their constant motion. Using charcoal and paper, I watched as the students moved across the floor, being corrected over and over by the Dance Master. My sketchbook soon became part of the dance.

Just a few years ago I decided I need to create a Ballet Series to share my joy of dance. Once again, I am practicing the basics. Form, steps, and movement. And most of all ... practice. After all ... Life is just a Dance.

According to Wikipedia “A gesture drawingis a laying in of the action, form, and pose of a model/figure. Typical situations involve an artist drawinga series of poses taken by a model in a short amount of time, often as little as 10 seconds, or as long as 5 minutes.”
